Mississippi woman tries to smuggle meth into prison in a Bible

A Mississippi woman broke at least one of the commandments by breaking bad and smuggling a batch of meth to her prison-inmate boyfriend -- inside a Bible!

Courtney Ford tore open the binding of the holy book and dropped it off for her sweetie, Stephen Jason Estes, but she made a mess of the meth stash, which was quickly discovered by corrections officers assigned to the Lee County Jail. A spokesman for the facility says it was easy to see something was amiss, because the binding was loose and there was an obvious bulge in the back of the book.

Estes initially denied being in on the plot, but Lee County Sheriff Jim Johnson says, “We know he knew about it because that day, he kept asking where his Bible was, even before she dropped it off."

Estes was already serving time on meth distribution charges; Ford was out on bond for the same thing. (Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal)
